Burpengary Restaurants & Eateries
Whilst the culinary delights of the Burpengary region might not be the first thing you consider when visiting us (if you’re not in the know), you could be missing out by not venturing into one of the Moreton Bay Region’s best kept secrets. While this list is by no means exhaustive, it will give you a taste (pun intended) of what’s on offer in our local array of Burpengary restaurants, cafes and takeaways.
Basil and Vine: This stunningly decorated and award-winning Italian bistro is filled with atmosphere despite it’s humble location in Burpengary Plaza shopping centre and is always popular whether it is for coffee, breakfasts, lunches or dinners. Great for casual dining as well as catching up with larger groups of friends and family, this is one of the North Harbour team’s go to places every time we have an excuse to celebrate! The staff is excellent and we love the desserts, salads, pastas, wine selection, cocktails, pizzas…ok, we love it all…excuse me while I just go and book our next visit! Seriously though, if you like home cooked Italian food in a great setting with excellent staff, this is the place for you.
Also at Burpengary Plaza, is The Burrito Bar. The Burrito Bar unsurprisingly specialises in Mexican food but with a modern twist: All the expected items are on the menu burritos, fajitas, quesadillas, nachos – as are margaritas, tequila, long island ice tea and more. Opening hours are 11am to 9pm so it’s great for lunch or dinner – or both 😊 Everything we’ve tried has been great, and the service is very good. We’re looking forward to going back to try some more cocktails! The Burrito Bar also does takeaways and specials, making this treat a great and affordable choice.
Our next choice offers not just one restaurant but many, Bite Markets at North Harbour which is open every Friday and Saturday from 4pm till late. With over 30 flavour makers offering you the perfect place to eat, drink and spend time with friends and family, the treats come from all over the world; bao buns, oysters, waffles, dumplings, wings, gelato, ice tea, Italian, curry and so much more. As well as flavour makers offering these mouth-watering food and beverage choices, Bite has nightly live entertainment and a children’s play zone and throws some of the best Burpengary events! Bite is a short 3 minutes from the North Harbour Sales Centre at Exit 150 off the Bruce Highway on Nolan Drive. Whilst we haven’t tried every single one of the 30 flavour makers just yet, we’re certainly working on it!
Divine Pizza & Pasta is as described! With a wide menu of delicious pizzas and pastas plus spare ribs and wings, this takeaway in The Hub at Burpengary East is hard to beat. In fact we love it so much that we may or may not order the pizza special to celebrate every Friday lunchtime. It is also one of our favourite go-to dinner stops. Perfect for an easy meal at home, or al fresco in one of our parks while the kids have a play, there’s something for everyone on this great menu.
Also at The Hub is Aldo’s Patisserie! This new little slice of heaven opened in late 2021 and is already filling the bellies and hearts of North Harbour residents. The tagline coffee, sweets, savoury and a taste of Italy about sums it up and online comments are raving with positive reviews about how good this place is, so don’t delay if you need a treat.
And finally, Havn Café at North Harbour has to get a mention! Havn Café (located next to the Sales and Information Centre on the corner of Buckley Road and Fraser Drive) is open for coffee, smoothies, snacks, breakfast and lunches both sit down and takeaway meals. We might be slightly biased, but as caffeine enthusiasts we think their coffee is up there as some of the best we’ve ever had and their online reviews seem to agree!
